I have been remiss in promoting some excellent shows in the Pioneer Valley lately, but I am correcting that now by ensuring you hear this: singer/songwriter Dennis Crommett is playing The Parlor Room in Northampton, MA this Friday 2/1.
You may know Crommett from his guitar-playing in indie champer-pop band Winterpills, or as the lead singer/guitarist for band Spanish for Hitchhiking (whose lovely “Kissing Music” came up on shuffle for me this morning). Well, in addition to these fine projects, he also releases music under his own name, with an acoustic roots-rock or folk-rock bent, you might say. His 2011 album In the Buffalo Surround continues to be on heavy rotation for me, and I highly recommend it. As I do this show he’s playing in an intimate venue. Check it out.
